About Cyber Manatee GmbH

Cyber Who?

Cyber Manatee is a young game development studio from Cologne, Germany, focusing on ambitious indie games that merge interesting gameplay with captivating stories.

The team is working on its first commercial project, which is a first-person horror title set in the German hinterland of the 1980s. Thereby, players will find themselves in an abandoned border area surrounded by forests, ruins, bunkers and odd residents to uncover a secret that stayed with them for more than 20 years.  


Why Cyber Manatee?

Joining Cyber Manatee means joining a team of friends. We are passionate developers with an open mind and skill set. It is not our goal to create “another horror” game. Much more we are aiming for that special thing, which means something to us as creators as well as to the players. 

While making games, we want to learn, work hard, have fun and form relationships that we can build on.  If this sounds like a team you’d be interested in working with, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
